Works Like a Charm.
The first test of the law in Okla-
home to guarantee bank deposits
was made last week. A bank was
in shaky condition. A bank ex
aminer took charke , and drew up
on the guarantee fund and paid
every depositor in full. When
Mr. Bryan was laboring with the
people of Oklahoma to induce
them to enact a guarantee law
many of the republican newspa
pers denounced him in severe
terms for sticking his nose into
the banking business declaring
that he knew nothing about such
matters. But now the newspapers
of all parties appear to be pleased
with the workings of the new law.
Discussing the Oklahoma incident ,
the Lincoln Journal , perhaps the
leading'republican paper of Ne
braska , says : "From all stand
points the first test ot the- Okla
homa bank deposit insurance law
seems to prove its merit. An ex
aminer finds a bank playing fast
and loose with the banking law.
He clos < ? d its doors. Under the
old system depositors would re
ceive a dividend of 40 per cent in
about three months , that being
the cash resources of the bank ,
when closed. Later they would
get such a part of the balance less
the receiver's expenses as might
be collected in the next half dozed
years. Under the new system the
guaranty fund created by a tax on |
all the banks was drawn upon to
pay the depositors immediately in
full , and the receivership will be
conducted in behalf of this fund
and of the stockholders of the
bank. Xo doubt , the deposits of
this bank will go promptly into
Moreover , the stimulated distrust
of all banks which would have
caused withdrawal of deposits
throughout the state cannot result
from this failure so that the banks
are likely lose less under the new
plan even chough the § 22,000
drawn from the guaranty fund be
all lost , which is unlikely. Yet ,
since they might as well save also
the § 22,000 , we can imagine the
Oklahoma 'bankers , aroused by
this incident , using their great in
fluence to keep the examiners ac
tive and earnest that such abuses
by other banks may be nipped in
the bud. Unde the old system the
bankers had little interest in promoting
meting the efficiency of bank ex
The Old Spirit.
A marvelous change has taken
place in the political atmosphere.
One year ago only the most en
thusiastic admirers of William J.
Bryan were able to entertain the
hope that there was better than a
prospect for his election to the
presidency. Today there is hope in
the hearts of all believers in Bryan
principles. Especially is this true
in Nebraska. The truth of it was
illustrated at eyery point during
the late tour of Mr. Bryan in the
nothern and western sections of his
home state. Everywhere those who
accompanied him on that tour
heard one shibboleth : "Nebraska
for Bryan , " and they heard it from

the lips of hundreds of men who
boldly stated that they had always
affiliated with the republican party ,
but that this time they would be
with and for the man who has done
so much to give Nebraska a good
name and fame among the peoples
of the earth. If any man doubts
that the people of Nebraska are
now imbued with the old crusade
spirit of 1896 let him travel to any
section of the state and ask the
people what of the prospects for
Bryan in Nebraska ? Men who for
ten years have taken no interests in
politics men who have trusted the
republican party in congress to en
act some legislation to curb the
trusts , and to give the country
some relief from corporation rule ,
openly say that if the republican
party , with complete control of con
gress for more than ten years , can
not or will not do something to
grant the people relief from the aggressions
gressions of predatory wealth , then
it j is time to look in some other
direction for relief and quite na
turally they are turning to that
great citizen who has through the
years so courageously and so ably
pleaded the cause ot the common
people. There is good reason for
hope in the hearts of men who love
Bryan and his principles. The old
spirit of ' 96 is in the air , and the
paramount duty of those who desire
to see their great champion triumph
over the hosts of error is to imbibe
freely of the atmosphere of confid
ence , and by their actions and their
words communicate to others a
measure of the hope that is in them.
Doubt never won a battle on any
field. Hope , loyally supported by
Confidence , lias won many battles

Word reached here yesterday that
our baseball boys lost to Ainsworth
yesterday by the score of 6 to 1.
We learned few particulars about the
game but can safely say that the
boys did their best * and pufc up a
good , stiff game against their op
ponents. They play at Atkinson
today and tomorrow , and at Stuart
Saturday. Fischer's orchestra went
with the team to furnish music for
dances which are to be held in the
evenings at each town.
